Notes

Tasting notes:
'Franco Lourens recently became assistant winemaker at the acclaimed Alheit Vineyards and his own label 2016s are damn fine... 43% Cinsault from Darling and Stellenbosch, 43% Carignan from Wellington and 14% Grenache from Bot River. The nose displays red and black berries, fresh herbs, earth and spice. As with its counterpart, the wine has a striking clarity about it – well defined fruit, fresh acidity and firm but not astringent tannins.' – Christian Eedes, 93/100
